How to Keep Your Bones Healthy. It’s never too early to start taking good care of your bones to keep them strong and healthy. There are things you can try in your 20s and 30s to stay healthy and flexible through your 60s. Just make sure you know all of your existing conditions and medications, and consult your doctor beforehand.
Studies prove that women aged 50 and older have a rate of osteoporosis 4 times higher than men of the same age. We start to lose bone mass after we turn 30. Although it’s an ongoing process that takes time, it’s probably the best time to finally adopt a healthy lifestyle and realize the importance of regular physical activity. Unfortunately, if either of your parents has been diagnosed with osteoporosis, it means you also have a genetic disposition to get the disease.
